Show us your critters!

Figured I'd make an updated version of this thread:

Hey wineland, Lucy actually stopped growing at 52 pounds. I guess your vets rule doesn't always hold true. Hope Leila and Tully are doing well.

Lucy is a Labradoodle. Roxi is a Tibetan Terrier. Here's some video of them playing:

Thanks for sharing everybody. All very nice looking dogs.

Althea, those two are so cute together. That's great that you give that stray something to look forward to each day now. Sorry to hear about your other dog. What breed was he? My dogs wouldn't fare so well against jackals.

buscameby, those are awesome dogs. Two of my favorite breeds. Love the names.

craven, haha. Roxi almost always starts the shenanigans. She knows she won't win any bouts with a 52 pound fozzie bear, but likes to try anyway.

Our other dog's breed was a Sofa-Chewing Mousehound.

Ok, that's not officially recognized. But he was a rescue mutt, mostly Beagle with some possible Pointer and Border Collie.

Very ultra-beta, so either the jackals decided he was too wimpy to waste their reputation on or, since by that time arthritis and other troubles were getting to him, he sent off vibes of "I am dealing with enough today and you'd better not push me, buddies."

But he really did catch mice. Along with couches and a stuffed bear. If those jackals had been stuffed toys, they'd have been toast.

Lol, sounds like he was a nice mix of breeds though (Beagle, Pointer, and Border Collie). Thanks for sharing!

Nice doggies deniro. What happened to all the other pix that were up this morning? ARs and WTs were sooooo cute! (I'm missing a couple as well). Where are they?!?
Anyway, here is the best dog I will ever have the pleasure
to share some time with (pronounced BRI- DEE):

And just a reminder, of ANY song that could have played on
the way to put her down on new years eve:
..... "Direwolf".
"Pleeeeease, dont murder me". It was gut wrenching and
kinda funny at the same time. That song holds special
meaning for me now until the rest of MY life...

Good old #32300 as far as the dog burners go:

The above is just a generic internet photograph, but it is very close to the last pet I owned. All my pictures of him are on the hard drive in the computer with the dead motherboard.

He was a rescue from the local shelter. The shelter workers named him Matt because of the condition of his coat when he was found. He stayed at the shelter long enough to be accustomed to the name so Matt he was. The shelter estimated, from his physical condition, he had been "feral" for as long as 6 months when he was found and the vet estimated his age at 2 to 3. Matt lived with us for 15 years but will be in our hearts forever. He was the best dog my family ever had. And now he is sleeping peacefully under the butterfly bush next to my motorcycle shed.

Matt has been gone a while now, and I sometimes think I'd like another pet. But, then I realize I'm just not ready. There is not a replacement available at this time and there may never be. They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks, and I just don't think this old dog can be taught to handle a new dog.

Your last paragraph? I have been trying to think those

Rainbow Bridge


Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had
to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Yeah, they gave me that on a card right after they whacked
my dog. I've seen it a few times. I really appreciate the
sentiment, but I think this Rainbow Bridge thing smells of...
I wont say it.
I do understand you are trying to be nice. And Im not try-
ing to be mean, but I just dont get it. Its a great thought,
but I find more solace in holding a bag full of burned up
dog and YOUR words. For that, I thank you.



Oh, and word of advice. Dont walk in to have your dog killed and ask for Dr.Kavorkian. Having to explain that 'joke' to a teenage intern just takes all the
flavor out of it.

"Who?? We only have Dr. Williams and Dr. Bennett here..."

Matt's physical condition had deteriorated to the point I was going to have him euthanized. My scheduled day off was only two days away and he wasn't really suffering, just very feeble; so I decided to wait. I awoke on that day to find he had died in his sleep, in his own bed and for that I was thankful.

And yea, "Rainbow Bridge" is a little sappy but the sentiment is genuine and it seems to bring a bit of solace to most who have recently lost a pet.

Maybe this one is more appropriate...

craven and uu -

I found this to be of much comfort when I had to put Kenzie, my 12 1/2 year old Golden retriever down a year ago in June.


"Where To Bury A Dog"

There are various places within which a dog may be buried. I am thinking now of Kenzie, whose coat was blonde and red in the sunshine, and who, so far as we are aware, never entertained a mean or an unworthy thought. Kenzie is buried beneath a willow oak tree that was planted the same year she came home. At its proper season the oak will spread its leaves on her grave. Beneath an oak or cherry tree, or an apple, or any flowering shrub of the garden, is an excellent place to bury a good dog. Beneath such trees, such shrubs, she slept in the drowsy summer, or gnawed at a flavorous bone, or lifted head to challenge some strange intruder. These are good places, in life or in death. Yet it is a small matter, and it touches sentiment more than anything else.

For if the dog be well remembered, if sometimes she leaps through your dreams actual as in life, eyes kindling, questing, asking, laughing, begging, it matters not at all where that dog sleeps at long and at last. On a hill where the wind is unrebuked and the trees are roaring, or beside the ocean she knew all her life, or somewhere in the flatness of a pasture land, where most exhilarating cattle graze. It is all one to the dog, and all one to you, and nothing is gained, and nothing lost -- if memory lives. But there is one best place to bury a dog. One place that is best of all.

If you bury her in this spot, the secret of which you must already have, she will come to you when you call -- come to you over the grim, dim frontiers of death, and down the well-remembered path, and to your side again. And though you call a dozen living dogs to heel they should not growl at her, nor resent her coming, for she is yours and she belongs there.

People may scoff at you, who see no lightest blade of grass bent by her footfall, who hear no whimper pitched too fine for mere audition, people who may never really have had a dog. Smile at them then, for you shall know something that is hidden from them, and which is well worth the knowing.

The one best place to bury a good dog is in the heart of her master.

Adapted for my Kenzie, originally by Ben Hur Lampman

Thanks Mando. You shared not only a beautiful sentiment, but also pictures of a beautiful and loving pet. RIP Kenzie

"The one best place to bury a good dog is in the heart of her master."

So true. And a task that is accomplished by said "good dog" through their unconditional love for "his/her master" during their time with us.

And I re-iterate, "Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal."

Awwwww! Everyone has such cute dogs!

This is our adopted street dog, who followed my kid home:

Tihar%2C%20Village%2C%20Chitwan%201104.JPG

And here she is with her Very Best Friend, a street dog who used to be too scared to come up to us. That's the brown one. She hangs out at the house and even goes on walks with our girl in the morning. (I’ll get pics of that one of these days.) The dog in the background is our landlady’s German Shepherd. They all like to play together, and I swear, the street gal (in brown, on the ground) actually comes to our door and asks us if our dog can play. She has a thing she does with her paws like she’s playing. They look just like each other, except for the coloring ... both "Indian Pariah Dogs":

Tihar%2C%20Village%2C%20Chitwan%201104.JPG

Sadly, our other dog passed away this spring and was buried in a jungle where he loved to roam and once faced off against jackals.

We also just went to a doggie funeral two nights ago. Our landlady's other dog, who was 14, passed away of old age and was buried in the yard with full ceremony, including flowers dropped in the grave, a baggie of rice, and money to pay his way to The Other Side. My son contributed 20 rupees for a total of 25 rupees, which should be sufficient for the ferry man, I guess ... he was a good old guy and used to sneak into our house and sleep on our dog's carpet. And rifle through the cabinets. And I once caught him marking the furniture. (Hey, some languages are universal.)

It's said here that dogs become people in their next lives.

Thanks. Mosby, the B&W, is almost 18 and will be leaving this life soon. Can't bring myself to be the One. He has truly been the best dog ever and has a command of English like no other dog I have ever had. Kerelian Bear dog. When you put him in a vehicle and turn onto a gravel road he immediately alerts and can point to a bear in his sleep. I was clueless until a friend who is a guide in ME that takes people into bear dens showed me what he could do w/ no training.
SIG has had considerable training and can run a deer down. A friend with a Malinois had his in a field and he actually ran along side a deer. The deer looked over when they were neck-&-neck and jumped sideways & nearly had a coronary.

I love the white labs V .
I like the sidewinder too. They taste like chicken. Saw a baby rattler a couple weeks ago on a hike perched in laurel at shoulder height on the trail. Bastard.

"Saw a baby rattler a couple weeks ago on a hike perched in laurel at shoulder height on the trail. Bastard."

Make that double bastard.....I typed that while wiping coffee from my monitor.

Had a similar experience with a baby copperhead while kayaking in the Great Dismal Swamp. We were pushing through some low branches when "plop" - a small, maybe 10 inch long copperhead drops into my lap. Another "plop" as something 'else' dropped into my shorts - I reached down, snatched it up by the tail and flung it as far as I could.

Good luck with Mosby - I made that journey with my Kenzie last summer and it was the most heart wrenching thing I've been through. Just a suggestion for your consideration - we found a vet who came to the house and did the euthanasia at home. It was so much easier on me and Kenzie. I got to hold her right up until the end. She was at ease and I was immeasurably comforted knowing that the last thing she felt was me stroking her head, the last thing she heard was my voice and the last thing she saw was me smiling at her.

We are so unworthy of the love our pets give us......

Back in the 80's me and a housemate had a 2 foot pet rattlesnake in a terrariun at home. Things were fine until he got loose. I came home to a note on the door, "WARNING - somehow the snake got loose but I had to go to work"

It took me 2hrs to find it and talk about paranoia!! It was under the couch but it would move with the couch when I moved it. Then I got a glimpse of it's tail and caught it and released it into the hills where we'd found it. That was the end of having pet snakes.

Damn, Mondo, that was a heart wrenching story about Mosby!

Funny. I thought if it had been a copperhead one of us would have been bitten for certain since I have seen them ambush people. You are a lucky soul and should be glad for soiled britches only in this case. We were in VA too. The "problem" is that so many rattlers have been killed that the ones that remain often don't rattle since the ones that do have been culled out. So... you don't get the benefit of the warning. Another time I went hiking up Spy Rock with my son. On the way down he sat on a big old log. I looked over and there was a BMF timber rattler as big around as my arm sitting right under him. I told him not to move and explained the situation. He got up slowly and with no Prob. Then some moron 20 somethings came along and started poking his ass with a stick repeatedly. He never did rattle nor did he spring his full body length the way I expected and bite their asses. I was really hoping for some kind of lesson.

Good advice on the pet font. I have a great vet who travels to do large animals and would probably do that. I am planning on having a living wake. He has been a friend to many and busted a criminal cold one night who never would have been caught without his uncharacteristic round of barking.
